GIS-Based Asset
Management Solutions

Black & McDonald is a recognized leader in the outdoor asset management industry. Managing the reliability and lifecycle cost of outdoor assets spread across a large geographic area is a complex task. Our reputation was forged in street lighting where we established a proven track record of successfully delivering comprehensive street light maintenance programs to electric utilities and municipalities for more than 25 years.

Utilizing GIS technology to link the geospatial location of the assets with the physical attributes and work histories, our team has developed  cost effective services that enhance public safety and resident satisfaction.

In recent years, the ownership of street lighting systems has become a complex issue. With the inevitable phase out of High Pressure Sodium technology on the horizon, customers must manage the transition to LED technology. Whether the transition is handled with a major upgrade project or gradually addressed in the ordinary course of maintenance, Black & McDonald offers the knowledge, experience, field expertise and financial resources to assist customers in navigating this challenging task.  The landscape is further complicated by the evolution of Smart Technologies that seek to deploy small cell antennae and intelligent applications on street light and utility poles.  Our engineering team has extensive experience with helping our customers develop Master Plans to accommodate these requests without compromising the integrity of their infrastructure.

B&M has successfully applied our processes and experience in street lighting to many other outdoor assets. Today, our team provides turnkey asset management services to more than 500,000 assets including street lights, traffic signals, bus stops, pedestrian kiosks, statewide intelligent traffic management systems, small cell antennae, electric vehicle charging stations and many other intelligent applications. We recognize that one solution does not work for every customer, so Black & McDonald will work with you to customize a solution to meet your specific needs.  The range of services we offer include:

  • 24/7 In-house Call Center
  • Proactive and Reactive Maintenance
  • New Installations
  • GIS Mapping of Asset
  • Work Management Systems
  • Night Patrols
